My wife and I are of another generation but have a heart for young people who have little guidance and direction. We’re so discouraged to see the rise in suicide and are stunned to see the rising unbelief in God. The younger generations have great faith in the art of communication technology, yet are the least able to communicate. Couldn’t God be communicating with them and they aren’t listening? We’re praying that He will use us to communicate His message to today’s generation and that God will reveal Himself to this lost generation.


From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham

No matter how advanced its progress, any generation that neglects its spiritual and moral life is going to disintegrate, but generations need regeneration. Life isn’t meant to be lived according to man’s ways, but God’s ways. The Bible teaches that every person has a soul—the part of us that lives forever. If a person commits suicide that doesn’t end it. What ends is the life of the body, but the soul lives on forever. Some people turn to drugs and alcohol to escape. Millions of people are depressed that life does not turn out the way they had hoped.

While no one can prove God’s existence, it doesn’t mean that He isn’t real. God reveals Himself to man in nature, in conscience. The Bible says, “He has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe” (Hebrews 1:2, NIV). God is a holy God and the Lord is righteous in all His ways— loving toward all He has made (see Psalm 145:17). Those who trust in Him will find their needs met according to God’s Word and they will find contentment in living God’s way.
